What can you do?

What will you do?

What are you doing?

What if we don’t?

Our juror for this themed exhibition is Emily Rosmus of the Ned Smith Center. Emily joined the Ned Smith Center in January 2019 and serves as the Education Coordinator, scheduling and leading educational programs aiming to bring art and nature together in a way that benefits both. She obtained a B.S. degree in Biology and a minor in Fine Arts from Saint Francis in Loretto, PA in 2014 and discovered her passion for environmental education shortly thereafter. She has always enjoyed the arts, dabbling in sketching, photography, and watercolor, and finds the Ned Smith Center a perfect environment to bring her two passions together and encourage others to do the same. She and her husband, Travis, recently bought their first home in Dauphin, PA, and live with their dog, Clara. When not working, she enjoys hiking, reading, running, and making sure Clara is living her best life.

Open call for Mountains to Oceans: the paradox exhibition *EXTENDED*

Eligibility:

Ocean Exhibit Series 2020
Mountains to Oceans: the paradox exhibition

Exhibit dates: 1 - 30th September 2020

In the event of a cancellation, the exhibit will take place here in Spring 2021.

Time is pressing.

In over 4.5 billion years of geological time, earth’s carbon system has suffered few extremes like today's. We and our fellow species are in trouble - here and now. 

​The immediacy of the effects of weather changes, humankind’s degradation of the forests and oceans, and the intimacy of the effects on us, in juxtaposition to geological time, is stunning, and is good reason to bury our heads in the age old sands. 

Alongside captivating works by a wealth of international artists, Art Science Exhibits brings nature science solutions into the conversation - such as ecosystem regeneration and clean-up - with the idea that when people begin to connect to the answers, change can occur. ​​​

____________________

Mountains to Oceans inaugural exhibition will take place at our main location in the very heart of Berlin, the Grand Hall of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin’s Thaer-Institut of Agriculture, next door to our friends at the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (Natural History Museum). This site is three stories high and especially suited for large sculpture. 

We plan to travel some works in this exhibit to museum locations in Berlin, Belgium, Italy, Switzerland, the USA, and potentially on to the 2021 Venice Biennale.

Participants in our former exhibitions have traveled with us to the 2019 Venice Biennale. Many of these artists found support to exhibit through our recommendations and many continue professional relationships with us.

Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies

Share

Category:

Country:

A Studio in the Woods is now accepting applications for Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. Residencies are 6 weeks, will take place between September 2020 and May 2021, and include a $2500 stipend and $2000 materials budget.

Rising Residencies invite artists to examine the severity of the climate crisis and be agents of change to guide our collective understanding, response, and vision as we shape our shared future. New Orleans and the inhabitants of our region are frequently invoked as some of the most vulnerable to the effects of environmental degradation. While sea levels, temperatures and emotions are rising, our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the reckoning and hope which are required in the ways humans interact with shifting urban and natural ecosystems. As the climate crisis moves beyond coastal communities and permeates the collective understanding of the future, the challenges faced by Southern Louisiana resonate exponentially. We look to artists to ignite our imaginations, illuminate our challenges, and offer new ways to examine the world.

Rising Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.

Proposals are due by April 13th and residencies will be awarded by June 12th, 2020.
